    Snoop puts the Dogg to bed after spiritual awakening in Jamaica, saying he wants
    to seek out new challenges.

    Snoop Dogg is dead! Long live Snoop Lion!
    The rumors are true! Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr – aka Snoop Doggy Dogg aka the rap legend
    behind hits like Still A G Thang and Gin n Juice – is no more.

    Broadus told journalists on Tuesday that he's officially dropped the Dogg act and upgraded
    his name to "Snoop Lion".


    In all seriousness, Snoop says his decision is for real. The rapper says he underwent a spiritual
    and artistic rebirth while in Jamaica where he's been working on his next album.

    Rastafarian priests reportedly inspired the name change.

    "I went to the temple, where the high priest asked me what my name was, and I
    said, 'Snoop Dogg'," he told journalists on Tuesday. "And he looked me in my eyes
    and said: 'No more. You are the light. You are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like
    I had started to understand why I was there."

    Snoop Dogg changes name to Snoop Lion, says he is Bob Marley reincarnated

    Snoop Dogg wants you to know that he's tired of hip-hop, is Bob Marley reincarnated
    and is embracing reggae instead of the culture of guns he once rapped about.

    Also, he's got a new name: Snoop Lion.
    The artist said at a news conference Monday in New York that he was "born again" during
    a visit to Jamaica in February and is ready to make music that his
    "kids and grandparents can listen to."

    Maybe he hates the name Calvin.

    I have know people to change their name, and it is in the Torah / Bible that
    HE (The Most High) changed names of people for a purpose.

    Just like those who change their name from Barry to Barack.

    Who knows, I do not judge. Just sharing a news wire.

    He looks more like a Calvin to me than he does a Snoop Lion. Calvin- me thinks you are "one toke over the line" Don't everyone run to the bookstore at the same time to buy that "coffee table book" he has coming out.
